MOFTAK SOLUTIONS named as one of the FASTEST growing company of the region!! At 2nd Global Summit on Entrepreneurship in Istanbul held between 3 - 6 December 2011, Moftak Solutions officially named as one of the FASTTEST growing company of Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and Pakistan.
AllWorld's Arabia 500 winners were announced at the summit,Entrepreneurship, values and Development: A Global Agenda, which was hosted by Turkish Prime Minister R. Tayyip Erdogan and keynote speech was delivered by United States Vice President Joseph Biden.
Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, in his message to Arabia 500 finalists said,"I would like to greet all the participants and express our pleasure in hosting the 2nd Global Entrepreneurship Summit and welcome you to our country and Istanbul. I would like to express my gratitude to my esteemed friend, Mr. Barack Obama, President of the United States, and his colleagues for launching these Summits through his personal initiative and hosting the first Entrepreneurship Summit in Washington. I wish every success to the Summit and express my sincere regards". Vice President Joseph Biden highlighted how entrepreneurs are a driving force for job creation and economic growth, in his words, "Once, the wealth of a nation was primarily measured by the abundance of its natural resources, the expanse of its landmass, the size of its population and the power of its armies, but today, the true wealth of a nation is found in the creative minds of its people and their freedom and ability to bring those ideas to life and to develop not only new products, but the technologies that will create entirely new industries, entire new markets, entire new opportunities".
This initiative to empower and recognize the achievements wouldn't have been possible without the tireless efforts of AllWorld team and co-founders Deirdre Coyle, Anne Habiby and Professor Michael Porter from Harvard Business School. In their own words, "AllWorld ranks fast growing private companies and puts them on world map, drawing the market to them in new capital and opportunities.
The emerging world does not suffer from acapability deficit; it suffers from a visibility deficit. Without visibility, companies can't get to scale and countries can't prosper". We at MOFTAK SOLUTIONS, take a great pride in what we have accomplished since the inception of our company. Alhamdulillah by achieving this milestone which is in line with our CEO's vision, "We are following a path which we envisaged at the time of laying down a foundation of our company, it was based on one key factor; sustainable growth.
Therefore we are quite confident that based on past few years experiences we'll be able to achieve our goal to be a market leader", we are one step closer! Although, since the inception of Moftak Solutions we have witnessed several achievements; publishing our first mobile app on Android Market, Apple AppStore and Windows Mobile App Hub, achieving the status of ISO 9001:2008certified company, opening our offices in United Kingdom and United states,developing and successfully deploying a multimillion dollar generating E-Commerce websites, launching TV applications like Islam Box on Apple TV,Google TV, Roku Box and Boxee Box, and many more but getting short listed for Arabia 500 gave us real assurance that we are on right track, and forthat we really appreciate AllWorld team.
This would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication and consistency shown by each and every member of our team under the supervision of our COO. Therefore, we at Moftak Solutions kindly appreciate our consideration for this worthwhile endeavor.
